    I have read several post about not adding to much wood for smoking? I assums I start the fire with charcoal? Then add wood for smoke? Keep adding wood at a rate to get the temp to around 200? Then keep it their. Do i add charcoal after the fire is stated?

    It would help to know what type of equipment you are using... normally you would use ALL charcoal for your heat unless you are using a stick burner... when using charcoal for heat you just add 1 or 2 chunks of wood for the smoke flavor every hour or so (when smoke stops add a few more...

    Hay Jck,

    I have a cheap o depot brickman at the moment. If I understand u correctly, I do not use all wood?

    I will be fabricating a iron Smoker in the next few month as I have a fab shop.........

    So use charcoal for heat and wood for smoke.
